“You have amazing teachers who have really helped my son improve in his English and Maths. He has really enjoyed attending Saturday school all thanks to your teachers. The classes are perfect for people who come from a low income family like myself.”

  • Justine Brian

    Director of Civitas Schools

    Justine was formerly the director of the Institute of Ideas Debating Matters sixth-form debating competition. She believes in education and grappling with big ideas – and practised what she preaches by completing a degree in Classical Studies at Birkbeck College, University of London, as a mature student. She loves good food and hates food snobbery, and learned to cook at Westminster College. She is an occasional writer on food issues and has produced a number of debates at the Battle of Ideas festival on food-related topics. Her greatest media claim to fame was being on Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour on the issue of ‘frugal food’, which made her Mum extremely proud.
